Office of Minority Health:
Cleveland Department of Public Health

The goal of the Cleveland Office of Minority Health (COMH) is to identify local health disparity needs with an emphasis on informing, educating, and empowering at risk communities. This includes Cleveland’s African-American/Black, Asian, Hispanic/Latino, and Native American populations.

The office is responsible for:
  • Activating efforts to educate citizens and professionals on imperative health care issues.
  • Providing minority health data and technical assistance to local agencies working to improve the health status of minority populations.
The COMH works with private and public partners to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of our collective efforts.

The COMH is supported by the Ohio Commission on Minority Health and is part of a national initiative to localize the concept of racial and ethnic health equity.

April is Minority Health Month. Come join us at these Cleveland events all month long!
